I live in Atlanta and used HomeLight to find an agent to sell my late father's home in New York. The agent I chose went out of her way to ensure a sale. HomeLight saved me a lot of time and effort.

HomeLight found me the perfect Realtor. He did a great job of staging my home and took terrific pictures while respecting my wishes. The home sold in one day. I couldn't have had a better experience.

Sharon K


I had never sold a house and didn't know any Realtors when I came across HomeLight. What blessing it was! I'm genuinely happy with the entire experience and would recommend HomeLight to anyone.

Ed S


I tell everyone about HomeLight. It's free! They connected me with agents who brought tons of useful info to our first meeting. The one I chose sold my home fast and for more than the asking price.
